NIN :: The Nine Inch Nails Discussion Thread - Page 4
I like that the disbanding and retirement of NIN has not affected Trent Reznor in a way that would keep him from revisiting his best material. Maybe there will be a HALO 5 reissue in the next few years. I just wonder what film he's gonna score next cause I don't think that How To Destroy Angels project is going to hold up. I am really looking forward to rediscovering HALO 2 on Nov. 22.
Stream Nine Inch Nails' Pretty Hate Machine Reissue in Its Entirety Right Now[copied from pitchfork.com]
On November 22, UMe/Bicycle Music Company will release a remastered and expanded reissue of Pretty Hate Machine, Nine Inch Nails' landmark debut album. (The vinyl version is out December 7.) Right now, you can stream the whole thing, including the bonus track cover of Queen's "Get Down Make Love", at Soundcloud.
I am so all about this it's not even funny. Damn this album sounds good!  I highly recommend Terrible Lie, Sanctified, SIN, The Only Time and Ringfinger.
I'm still liking NTAE after 3 listens. It now sounds to me like a more effects-drenched version of The Slip. Not a mind-blower, but good.
I set up a playlist with all the new instrumental tracks from Fragile Deviations. Hmmm. There's nothing substantially songy there. Mostly they sound like segues, going through variations on top of a loop.
Put all together out of context, it sounds like the background music to a CD-ROM FMV adventure game. By that standard, they're pretty good. I'd say this Deviations stuff is only for the hardest of the hardcore, though.
Exactly my thought. As soon as he started up, I immediately cringed.
I dig it even if it isn't breaking any new NIN ground.
As far as his vocals go....I disagree. Trent's vocals are integral to this version of NIN and him not singing wouldn't make it NIN.
Now there are the NIN ambient/instrumental works that have been released but those seem less like NIN and more of an indulgence of Trent and his soundtrack leanings.
That's more the NIN I enjoy. Or the slower stuff. Quieter. Or even heavier. This...this is just too poppy for me.
I am sure this parody isn't new to most NIN fans, but the first release off the new EP really makes this even more hilarious, but also kind of depressing. He really, really, really, really needs to stop making this song.
